Balzer Designs Spring Stencil Hop part 2!


Welcome everyone!  So glad you found me here.

I am so happy to have been able to participate in another blog hop hosted by the wonderful Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.  This time we worked with the Wooden Parquet stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.

As some of you may know, I am on a mission to change my diet and life.  I have been working only in my Weight Loss Journal (or Wellness Journal if you wish) recently and I find it very helpful.  When I looked at this stencil, it reminded me of Zebra print.  This is one of the many reasons why I love Julie's stencil designs, so versatile!


The theme was a Ferris Wheel which is barely visible in the background.  I added clear gesso over top of the patterned paper which created a base for the multiple layers of paint on top.


I really like using both sizes of the stencil on the same page.  I used the larger stencil as more of a focal point, and the smaller with spray ink as an accent.



I was not part of the Lotus Flower stencil hop, but check out this page below, I LOVE this stencil too!
